Notes from Taper: 
NOTES:
- Please do not sell this recording, ever.
- There are a couple of brief volume adjustments in Fear Inoculum and Aenema. Otherwise it's smooth sailing. 

Night one of the homecoming L.A. shows:  
This was a powerful show. The performance was tight and intense. Probably the best Tool show I had seen since the Lateralus tour. Pneuma was the highlight. 
Tool's sound engineers + Staples Center PA were working well that night. Nicely balanced and crisp.
I lucked out with an aisle seat perched underneath the right stack in front of Justin. Loud with a clear line to the stacks.  
We were hit by waves and waves of sound for 2 hours. Loud brutal crunchy tightly wound ethereal waves of sound. By the middle of Invincible, the sound had pulverized me into a semi-trance. 
Stinkfist pulled me back out, then Abba's Dancing Queen sent us off for a surreal walk out into the warm L.A. night. 

A special performance and a really nice recording. Hope you enjoy!
